Are you struggling with your relationships, whether that be with your partner(s) or kids? Are you trying to get clear on who you are now, not who you used to be? As a therapist who is trained relationally, I work with individuals, couples and families. I am interested in helping you change the story of yourself and seeing what else is possible for you. My approach is gentle and non-confrontational. I listen for what has not yet been said and I ask thought-provoking questions that help you explore you thoughts and feelings. I want you to feel relief and to feel more connected to yourself and your loved ones.

Dr. Seth Gilligan said, “stress is inevitable but overwhelm is optional.” While life can be challenging and the future uncertain, it's often the stories we tell ourselves that lie at the root of our suffering. Do you struggle with feelings of low self-worth and inadequacy? Do you find yourself ruminating about the past or lacking the motivation to move forward? Is fear of uncertainty holding you back from the life you’d like to live? Are you stuck in a cycle of self-defeating behaviors that you'd like to change? The good news is we have more influence over our own thoughts, emotions, and behaviors than we give ourselves credit for.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk to blossom” -Anais Nin. I can appreciate how difficult it is to make the first steps in entering into a therapeutic relationship. Telling our stories takes tremendous courage and strength. We can trick ourselves into believing that it would be easier to remain silent. We all hit a point in our lives where we need extra guidance, a genuine ear, or a safe place to open up. I create a safe and open space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and stories. I combine several therapeutic techniques, to allow you the freedom to share your journey.

Many of us come to periods in our lives when we feel overwhelmed, confused or immobilized by our circumstances and our feelings. Or we reach a point in life when we know in our gut that something has to change, but we just don’t know where to begin. Doubt and negative self-talk can make us feel stuck. Sometimes we struggle with feelings of sadness, anger, shame or anxiety and can feel very alone in that struggle. Having a safe place to talk and a safe, non-judgmental person to talk to is key to healing and moving beyond the “stuck place”.

We all assume so many important roles in our lives, we often lose sight of who we are as people. This can be especially true in times of change like marriage, the birth of a child, illness, children moving out of the home or back in, divorce, difficulties at work or at home, and a death of a love one. Often we end up feeling lost, anxious, and unsure of what we want or even who we are. I believe we all have the strength to find our answers and sometimes just need a guide to find the way more easily. I specialize in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and workplace stress using science-based strategies that get results.

I have experience working with perfectionism, burnout, ADHD, OCD, anger, toxic relationships, and narcissistic abuse recovery. I am a former Special Constable with policing experience. Many of my clients are First Responders seeking support for issues related to PTSD, stress, depression, anxiety, and sleep problems. They appreciate my ability to meet them where they are due to my understanding of their complex work environment and the pressures of maintaining a work-life balance.

Navigating the perinatal period can be both exciting and challenging. During this time, it's common to experience a wide range of emotions and adjustments. From the anticipation of a new arrival to the physical and emotional changes, the perinatal period is a unique and transformative journey. As you prepare to welcome your child, it's important to prioritize your mental well-being. Understanding the psychological aspects of this phase can help in coping with the changes and seeking support when needed. I believe in building a lasting connection with a therapist to support you through this life-changing process.

Divorce Counsellors

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
